We were pleasantly surprised at what a nice venue this is. We expected your typical dumpy theater with run down seats and feet sticking to the floor .... Totally not the case! It's a beautiful building that has either been restored or kept well. It is clean! Even the bathrooms are spotless. The seats are comfortable and even though drinks... More

This is a renovated old theater. It has been brought back to its original beauty and is a delightful place to spend an evening. They have Broadway plays performed by local actors and they are so professionally done it is amazing. The Lerner also brings in high quality acts of all kinds. There is literally something for everyone at one... More

Beautifully restored and renovated old building. Truly brings the 'class' back. Shows featuring local kids and talent are still very well done and produced. Makes a nice weekend for the family.

We've been to two concerts and going to another one this Thursday. Even though we were in the upper balcony, the acoustics were Fabulous! Everything inside is just beautiful! Can't wait to go back!

I took my daughter to the Three Dog Night concert. I was immediately impressed with what has been done to the old Elco. I am so glad they kept the "vintage" - but have up to date facilities. And, the staff not only knew what they wee doing - they were pleasant when I asked questions about the restoration. Look... More
